I love the classic presentation.
Appearance one heck of a great looking porter; really dark on the inside with a dark purple edge; smooth, 3-finger light brown head at pour; lace is respectable
Smell plum, sugary raisin, a more bitter chocolate than in the taste; light molasses; doesnt explode but it certainly makes the mouth water
Taste bit roasty; dark chocolate; light plum; light notes of dark chocolate and hops pair for a slightly acidic/tinny close and aftertaste; the lingering acidity pulls down the overall experience
Mouthfeel pleasant, moderate and lush but not overwhelming carbonation; slight/moderate crispy twang for most of the ride; bit dry to close; overall the feel is great for a porter, but at times the crispness midway and late acidity bring it down
Drinkability its the faults of the beer that urge drinking; the aftertaste issues are erased with less time to ponder deficiencies; if I was afforded a less tainted break, Id slam down a 5
I have had some relative bombs from Samuel Smith, but this is one afforded the label a parachute.

From a bottle to a pint glass.
A: pitch black with two fingers of thick kaki foam. Moderate lace on the glass as the head fades.
S: lots of coffee with some malts and smoke in the back ground.
T: follows the smell well with coffee and toffee flavors and a hint of malts.
M: medium to heavy with lasting flavor. Easy drinking.
O: everything that was said about this beer was right. Worth the wait and satisfying till the last sip. Try it!
